Chemical Reviews is one of the most highly regarded and highest-ranked journals covering the general topic of chemistry.The mission of Chemical Reviews is to provide comprehensive, authoritative, critical, and readable reviews of important recent research in organic, inorganic, physical, analytical, theoretical, and biological chemistry.In addition to the general reviews, the journal has published since 1985 periodic thematic issues focusing on a single theme or direction of emerging research.
Chemistry of Materials is devoted to the publication of original contributions on forefront, fundamental research at the interface of chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science. Both theoretical and experimental studies which focus on the preparation or understanding of materials with unusual or useful properties are relevant.Among the research areas of interest are solid-state chemistry, both inorganic and organic, and polymer chemistry, especially as directed to the development of materials with novel and/or useful optical, electrical, magnetic, catalytic, and mechanical properties, among others. Also of interest are fundamental issues relating to the fabrication and processing of electronic, magnetic, or optical materials and devices, including the generation of thin films by chemical vapor and solution deposition.Other appropriate topics include the design, synthesis, investigation, and application of polymeric and molecular precursors to solid-state inorganic materials (including sol-gel chemistry and polymer pyrolysis) and the preparation and study of biomaterials, nanomaterials, composites, catalysts, liquid crystals, coatings, thin films and interfaces, and self-organized molecular assemblies.
The aim of Crystal Growth & Design is to stimulate crossfertilization of knowledge among scientists and engineers working in the fields of crystal growth, crystal engineering, and the industrial application of crystalline materials.Crystal Growth & Design publishes theoretical and experimental studies of the physical, chemical, and biological phenomena and processes related to the design, growth, and application of crystalline materials. Synergistic approaches originating from different disciplines and technologies and integrating the fields of crystal growth, crystal engineering, intermolecular interactions, and industrial application are encouraged.Contributions emphasizing the fundamental concepts of crystal growth and supporting further understanding of the relationship between crystal growth conditions and resulting properties of the crystal (e.g., crystal shape, conduction, solubility) are highlighted.The journal primarily covers the following: * Crystal engineering (e.g., organic, inorganic, and hybrid solids) * Crystal growth of inorganic, organic, and biological substances (e.g., biomineralization) * Polymorphism, polytypism * Development of new nanostructured phases * Intermolecular interactions in the solid state (e.g., hydrogen bonding, lattice energies) * Modeling of crystal growth processes * Prediction of crystal structure and crystal habit * Determination and calculation of electronic distribution in the solid state * Nucleation theory * Molecular kinetics and transport phenomena in crystal growth * Phase transitions * Solvation and crystallization phenomena, modeling of crystallization processes * Purification techniques, industrial crystallization.
Energy & Fuels publishes reports of research in all areas of the chemistry of nonnuclear energy sources, including that involved in the formation of, exploration for, and production of fossil fuels; the properties and structure or molecular composition of both raw fuels and refined products; the chemistry involved in the processing and utilization of fuels; fuel cells and their applications; and the analytical and instrumental techniques used in investigations of the foregoing areas.Research on substances other than fuels whose goal is to elucidate some aspect of fuel chemistry is welcome, as are papers dealing with photochemical fuel and energy production. Papers dealing with nuclear energy or solely with process economics will not be published. Both fundamental and applied research are welcome.
Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T) is an authoritative source of information for professionals in a wide range of environmental disciplines. The journal combines magazine and research sections and is published both in print and online.News and features sectionThe news and features section of ES&T presents objective reports and analyses of the major advances, trends, and challenges in environmental science, technology, and policy for a diverse professional audience. It aims to promote interdisciplinary understanding in the environmental field. Although we welcome technical content in these articles, it is not a proper forum to present new data. Instead, the discussion should be based on data found in the peer-reviewed literature.ES&T seeks to publish papers that are particularly significant and original. The types of papers published in the research section of ES&T are research article, policy analysis, critical review, correspondence (comment/rebuttal), and correction/addition (errata). Manuscripts are initially reviewed by the editor and, if appropriate, by other scientists who assess the significance, originality, and validity of the work, as well as its appropriateness for publication. The Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editors, listed in the masthead, are responsible for all material published in ES&T.
